“We get to have our make-up and hair done, are photographed in a ball gown and are then interviewed by the judges to see if we have the personality they are after. There are some very pretty girls taking part so I'm not expecting to win but it would be nice.”

It Lydia does win she will be crowned Miss Teen Queen 2007 and will go on to represent the UK in other beauty pageants.
